What treat do you wish for ?

Jamie Ridler posted " What treat do you wish for ?" for this week Wishcasting Wednesday.

I wish to pamper & nurture my body, inner mind & spirit for a great Facial Spa Treatment.
I can feel at once serenity, calm and warmth......

Personal Retreat - Contemplation

After the sacred space are ready, proceed to week 3 ~ Contemplation.

I had never have my meditation before.

Wish to start with it some days later.

I bought set of 2 CD on Ayurveda & Feng Shui in my previous trip to Taiwan.

The both CD helps me when I was in mess.

*Ayurveda means “knowledge (Veda) of life (Ayu)”First inscribed in ancient Vedic texts about 5,000 years back, the Indian medicine system €“ one of the oldest in India €“ was practised by Vaidyas (Ayurvedic healers) who prescribed herbal medicines for common ailments and massaged pain away in their straw and bamboo shacks. *

There are several creative activities suggested by Kathryn Antyr, like prepare an art journal page, collage, create a mandala, design a shrine & etc.

What do you wish to say YES to ?

This week prompt in Wishcasting Wednesday

What do you wish to say YES to ?
(Deep breath) I initiate, step out and pursue one of my dream and I shall call it's as GOAL now.
I acknowledge my feeling of nervous, fear sometimes.
But ... no worry.
I whisper to my heart : "YES !! You can do it !".
** You can see so many 'YES' written in my 101 list in 1001 days project.

101.1001 list (review)

It's almost come to end of the year, manage to update on my 101.1001 list (initialed by Day Zero - the home of 1001 day project)

My findings from this exercise (since Feb' 09) are :-

1) Turns goal into habits (for eg. continue to wake up 5.30 am or earlier, devote to write at least 3 post per week , to eat healty, to treat ourself better & etc)

2) Commit to myself for family gathering time which I used to forget or too busy to do that.

3) Feel abundance & gratitude

4) Developing self displine & being persistence

5) Feel satisfaction when you are finish one task / not to forget about it.

6) New ideas gains

You may share with me what you have learned from this project or how it benefits you ?

You'll seldom experience regret for anything that you've done.
It is what you haven't done that will torment you.
The message, therefore, is clear.
Do it!
Develop an appreciation for the present moment.
Seize every second of your life and savor it.
Value your present moments.
Using them up in any self-defeating ways means you've lost them forever.

-- Dr. Wayne Dyer, Ph.D

DisCo Revealed

I took part in Seth's Disintegration Collaboration(DisCo) project.

Bundles of papers & cards hanged on the fence.
Exposed to mother of nature ~ sunlight, wind, moonlight, hazes (happen few months ago)

The unsual extreme weather caused the bundle sagged.

Parents-in-law wonder why I hanged this outside the house :)
The "art bundle".

Love the nature-disintegrate-paper

Recently, I have learned to bind my own book and addicted with it.

The papers only enough to make 1 book.

Just wonder shall I place the red heart or the heart-shape-dry leave in the 'hand'.

Got the cover paper from a paper bag which still robust even after months of explosure.

Everything, the strings/thread, paper, wires, cards was part of the 'DisCo' except the bead and recycle cardboard (used as the layer for the cover).

The magazine pages 'eaten up' together.

Use the wires that I wrapped the bundles for the binding.

The remaining Jenni Browlin's Bingo Card and the distressed magazine page.

The frayed envelope.

Creating Sacred Space

Last week, in our workshop ~ Personal Retreat, we are finding our feel the best, the warmest, the calmest, the most comfortable, and the place where time seems to pass in relaxed enjoyment.
However, my creative-space is not big enough to allow me to have my own sacred area at this moment of time.

Kathryn proposed to make Retreat House Journal.
She is so clever :)

I glue the 2 angels with folded papers, so make them 'pop' out. when you open this page.

I really enjoy in her workshop.

The topic of Personel Retreat that will be talked about in this week is 'Contemplation'. Can't wait to start reading about it.

*I'll upload my freebies this afternoon.

What do you wish to let go ?

This week prompt in Jamie's Wishcasting Wednesday is

What do you wish to let go ?

My wish for this week is .....

I wish to let go of my thought on how others people think of me.

Feeling so suck when friends / colleagues talked bad behind of me.
We are so close to each others and we work as a team ....
Ya..feeling upset and disappointing.

Some words for myself and you (if you encounter similar situation like me).

"What do you think of me is none of my business !!!"

Retreat house

My class with Kathryn Antyr on Personal Retreat Online Workshop has started.
The topic of RETREAT is totally new to me.

Lesson 1 : Cultivating Awareness

According to Kathryn, "Retreats provide an opportunity to step out of the everyday busyness and offers a respite for the soul. To retreat is not to run or hide from our problems and responsibilities, but to quiet the busy mind and to listen to our hearts. It is in *being* not *doing* that we uncover our inner guide. Peace and joyfulness is found in our stillness. When we return from retreat we are restored, grounded, and prepared to live our life from a place of strength. "

When I enter into this Retreat & Creative Studio, " I Free Myself This Moment".

I'm creating my journal in house-shape.
A big and comfort sofa & books for reading that I find find inviting and relaxing.
